Acknowledging youth hunter recruitment efforts may not necessarily pay dividends, many states now focus additional effort on the 27- to 40-year-old adults, people who have the time, money and resources to hunt and take their kids hunting.
As we celebrate 150 years of the NRA and reflect on the progress generated by NRA hunter members over the years, let us also acknowledge that our once widely accepted pastime is being pushed to the fringes then commit to recruiting others to “Join the Hunt.”
Delta Waterfowl will soon be hosting hunter education camps and mentored hunts across four Canadian provinces, thanks in part to a recent $90,000 grant that the organization received from Wildlife Habitat Canada. Delta is expanding its recruitment efforts to secure the next generation of waterfowl hunters.
As NRA members and hunters, we have the responsibility to increase our ranks. Through our NRA memberships, we have all the resources needed to do exactly that. So what's stopping you?
